Shamans of Siberia: Documentary Project in the Tuva Republic
SHAMANS OF SIBERIA: A LONG-TERM DOCUMENTARY PROJECT IN THE TUVA REPUBLIC, RUSSIA
PLACE: University Main Building (Fabianinkatu 33), Lecture hall 10
This guest lecture introduces a documentary project by Czech photographer Stanislav Krupař. The project is a result of more than ten years of work in the Tuva Republic, Russia, where Krupař has documented post-Soviet revival and transformation of shamanism. His project shows the influence of globalisation on the local community, increasing need for a shaman in a day-to-day life of Tuva people, and a change of customs related to shamanism.
Stanislav Krupař is a Prague-based documentary photographer.
His work appears regularly in Die Zeit, GEO, The New York Times, Time, De Standaard, NZZ, Focus, Internazionale, and other international media. Besides covering news and current affairs, Stanislav is also working on several long-term documentary projects in Russia and Siberia. He was a staff photographer at the Czech weekly magazine Reflex between 2009 and 2013. Since 2015, Stanislav has been a contractor photographer for the Czech version of Newsweek. www.krupar.com
